But before you begin bashing down the walls of a boarded over fireplace there are some important things to consider if you are to finish up with an efficient and safe fireplace. All work carried out must observe Part J of the Building Regulations, which addresses the construction and installation of flue linings, hearths, fireplaces and chimney breasts of any combustible appliance. If your home is a listed building you will also have to ascertain if planning permission is required from the local council before any work begins.

PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

If you are a competent and enthusiastic DIY'er it might be possible to renovate an existing blocked up fireplace, however the probability of running into structural issues in the majority of cases is unfortunately high. If you're fortunate when you open up a boarded fireplace you may find a decent hearth, lintel and chimney breast that needs nothing other than the advice and services of a chimney sweep to get it ready for a fire once more. Much more likely you'll discover a stopped up flue and old brickwork that needs structural reinforcement.

If a fireplace is installed improperly there's not only a fire risk to your property, but there can be associated health hazards, which is why it is advisable to hire an experienced Winterton installation company for a fireplace. Airflow has to be sufficient in any room that a fireplace is to be installed; and it's a requirement in Part J of the Building Regulations that this is the case. Dangerous carbon monoxide fumes can develop from an inefficiently burning fire in a poorly ventilated space.

To get past this concern a professional fireplace installation team will consider the circumstances and install vents around the room, or underneath the flooring, to ensure a sufficient air flow for the fire to combust safely and effectively. To prevent condensed air becoming trapped in unused chimney flues and causing staining and damp spots, vents may need to be fitted by the installation team to enhance the airflow.

BEFORE WORK BEGINS

A large amount of soot and dust can be released from a blocked up fireplace upon opening it up for restoration. Even with coverings for your home furnishings, the likelihood of damage from soot and grime is still possible and it's advisable to remove your furniture and carpets before any fireplace restoration work starts. If you're fortunate enough to be carrying out a complete restoration project then it should be one of the initial tasks to complete before re-plastering and decorating the walls. This should help to prevent any discolouring damage by dirt and chimney soot to any completed work.

STRUCTURAL & CONSTRUCTION WORK

With your fireplace uncovered, it's time to see what is in a fit state to be restored and give the chimney and hearth a good clean. You should now contact your chimney sweep, if you haven't already done so, to come and look at the old fireplace and chimney. They'll not only make certain that your chimney and flue are completely clean, but they can also take a look at the state of the chimney and flue liner and offer advice if you need to replace any part of the flue and chimney.

Flue Liners

Allowing your chimney to perform far more effectively, a chimney or flue lining is an important addition to the chimney system on your property. Flue liners are ducts fabricated from metal, ceramic material or clay that are fitted to the inside of chimneys to carry fumes to the outside. Chimneys on older homes in Winterton might not have linings at all, or will need to be re-lined depending on their age and condition.

Your fireplace flue lining can, in time, be damaged by the harmful gases which are generated by burning a fire. Whilst it is being cleaned, get the fireplace specialist to assess your flue for any impairment or any risks of it failing in the near future. If it is impaired, those harmful gases may be able to seep into your home rather than being safely expelled outside. There's likewise the risk of fires in the home as an impaired flue can allow extreme heat to penetrate the chimney's structure.
